Investor – Obvious Ventures

Open Position

We take a focused, thesis-driven approach to investing. We dive deeply into market and technology trends ahead of our investments, backing relatively few companies per fund so we can meaningfully support those companies. We have a tight-knit, fun-loving, nerdy team of five Partners, one Principal, one Senior Associate and three Venture Partners.

We are looking to grow the Obvious Ventures family with a new team member who will work directly with the investment team based in San Francisco. We hope to find someone who shares our general curiosity for how the world works, and passion for exploring a wide range of topics — from quantum computing to U.S. healthcare reimbursement models. We hope that you will contribute to the general intellectual discourse while bringing a vibrant, entrepreneurial spirit to the office.

Your Responsibilities

  • Networking: To strategically strengthen relationships and networks for the firm — with co-investors, industry partners, services providers, and founders.
  • Sourcing: To effectively generate compelling deal flow and investment opportunities.
  • Thesis Development: To build out a researched point of view on how the world will change in an area of interest.
  • Public Presence: To contribute to the firm’s thought leadership and public perception with presence on social media, industry events, and firm publications.
  • Everything Else: To assist in all aspects of the investment process like reviewing business plans, taking first meetings, performing due diligence on prospective companies, and supporting portfolio companies.
